If nighttime starts when the sun sets around 5:30 and MIDnight (middle of the night) is at 12:00, then night should end at 6:30 when the sun rises. If this is true then why would we say 'good morning' at 3:00 AM if it's really night? Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

I thought I knew, but after I read the story, I decided I don't know. Generally, to me, it's night when it gets dark and it's day when I get up to go to work or to go somewhere anytime after, say, 5 a.m. If I get up at 3 a.m., I consider that it's still nighttime.

I think night starts at sunsets, and ends at 12 am. Maybe that would explain it at least...

A 24 hr period is often divided into 2 when we say night and day, but into 3 when we say good morning, good afternoon and goodnight so there are bound to be parallaxes. 3am is certainly night but it is in the morning section.

I;d say it starts when it gets dark until it gets light again. :)

We say good morning because good night has become associated with good bye/go to sleep.

from from midnight to noon it's "good morning", from noon to 8 pm it's "good afternoon", and from 8 to midnight again, its "good evening". That's the way it is in spanish, anyway.
